Round up of latest results
Servej of Germany landed the Sunday Million. As Kristen Bihr reported he was no big stack when he arrived at the final table, but took only a few hands to change that, swinging the proverbial wrecking ball around until the first prize of $173,668 was in his hands.
Meanwhile over in the Warm-Up Elay99 was doing the same, dodging the likes of Mario "Pokerccini" Puccini and Shyam "G's zee" Srinivasan on his way to the title and a first prize of $64,169. David Aydt has the full report, which you can read here.
Here are all of those results in full:
